THE HIGH SCHOOL JOURNAL 203 The Teaching of English. A New Approach by W. S. Tomkinson. Pp. 128. Clarendon Press, Oxford. 1921. Mr. Tomkinson has written this book from the English point of view. This practice and methods are controlled by the new ideal schools, which was the old ideal in the universities, that education is not so much concerned with livelihood as with living. He believes that the true aim of English teaching is to open the gates of the magic realm of Literature, to enlarge the spiritual kingdom of the child. His methods are in many exercises helpful and sug- gestive, in some tedious. A less experienced teacher than Mr. Tomkinson will find many of the exercises in verse making or training in literary appreciation quite difficult. Yet Mr. Tomkinson's aim is a worthy one. His plea for pure speech and a deeper appreci- ation of the beauty of the English language ought to arouse any teacher of English. In an age when children are leaving school inarticu- late, unable to express themselves on paper, and un- apprenticed to literature, Mr. Tomkinson is attempt- ing to remedy conditions by training for pure speech ; for accurate, expressive reading; for better composi- tion writing; and for a keen appreciation of the beauty and form of the English language. — Ida C.
